>Nutella Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love Nutella! And I love cookies.

If you are a regular visitor over here at Butter, you would totally be well aware of those facts.

I grew up eating Nutella, and since there’s no Biscoff in Australia, and I desperately want to get my hands on it to bake with, I’ve been busying myself with Nutella recipes instead.

I have made cookies filled with Nutella before, but that was a long time ago, and these are a different cookie recipe – one with chocolate chips. Even better!

And I loved these. The cookies were a great combination of chewy and crunchy, the chocolate chips made them extra yummy, and the big, gooey, Nutella lava centers were the best.

I ate one at every meal time for as long as they lasted. Not kidding.

Cookie dough recipe adapted from Picky Palate.

220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 jar of Nutella (you won’t need the whole thing), refrigerated

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 3 trays with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.

Turn the mixer onto a low speed and slowly add the flour, salt and soda, mixing until just incorporated. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.

Using a medium cookie scoop or heaped tablespoon, scoop balls of the dough. Place a ball of dough in the palm of your hand and flatten it well. Place a teaspoon of Nutella in the center and fold the edges of the dough over, using your fingers to pinch them together and shape the dough around the Nutella.

Place on baking trays and bake for about 1o minutes, until lightly golden. Makes 32 cookies.

    Does everything you make turn up incredibly delicious??? I just finished the first batch of these cookies, and I think I died of too much deliciousness (or cholesterol, one of the two). These were sinfully fantastic and I can’t wait for my parents to get home from work so they can taste these cookies. Thanks for posting! :D

    Made these tonight – super fun and delicious. To your readers: make sure you put the Nutella in the fridge well in advance, and don’t make the cookies on top of the oven – the dough gets really soft and hard to manage! Thanks for the recipe!
